We stayed at the Fairmont for the Chicago Air and Water Show. We arrived early and we were able to check in right away. The service was great!!!! We were upgraded to a Lake View room. We were in room 2003 on the 20th floor. The room was nice. The view was incredible, we had a south view of the city, millenium park, grant park, and the musuem campus. We were able to see Buckingham Fountain it was a very nice view.
We liked the fact that the windows opened, it was great to get fresh air in the room. The decor was ok, it reminded me of something my grandmother would find as "fancy" not as modern as I like but very nice. The bedding was comfortable, there were marble tops on the dressers and bed stands. The room was very large. The bathroom was great....seperate tub and shower, robes provided on the back door. They supplied enough towels (so many hotels are stingy with towels) the bath supplies were nice, and the toliet was in an enclosed area with a sliding door. There were marble tops and floors in the bathroom but once again it seemed a little worn. There was a vanity with lights outside the bathroom...it was very 80's but a nice touch if updated. We had no use for the closet since we were there just one night but it was huge.
Room service was very good, very quick and polite. We ordered 2 sandwiches one with fries, one with salad. We also ordered chicken fingers from the kids menu with fruit salad. It was great!!!! Very efficient, the gentleman who brought our food set up a table in the room and we rather enjoyed the dinner and experience. It cost about $50 which in the Chicago Michigan Avenue area at this is a good price for in-room dining for three. The fruit salad was out of this world not 3 pieces of melon thrown on the plate it had blueberries, rasberries, blackberries, cantalope and honeydew. The salad was also good not just a few pieces of iceburg....it had a european blend with carrots, tomatoes and cucumbers.
The breakfast buffet was adequate. Not worth the $25 per person. Our daughter was free, but the buffet was not replenished and consisted of 2 types of eggs, sausage, bacon,
fruit, yogurt and pastries...there was also some lox, capers, tomatoes and onions. If you need to eat in the hotel it is ok but if you can venture out to Michigan Ave. there was some places for much less money and better quality. I am suprised since other Fairmont's I have stayed at (Banff) have the most incredible breakfast buffets. The staff in the restaurant were very sweet. Georgia in the restaurant was especially nice. The coffee was great!!!!
The lobby is beautiful with nice places to sit, even thought it is all marble and grand...it is very warm and inviting. The location is great for Navy Pier and Michigan Ave. and Millenium Park. We self parked at AON Center to save money, Valet is over $40.
Over all we loved this place...it was nice, friendly, the room was large and the location was great!!!
